Titans waived QB Tyler Wilson.

The Raiders used a fourth-round pick on Wilson in 2013, but he was so bad during practices that he was waived at final cuts. The Titans gave him a developmental shot this offseason, but he was reportedly "very bad" while splitting No. 3 reps with Zach Mettenberger.
Aug 6 - 10:22 AM

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky said second-year QB Tyler Wilson has been "very bad" in training camp.

The Raiders' fourth-round pick last season, Wilson could not beat out UDFA Matt McGloin and was waived in November. He latched on with the Titans, but it seems unlikely he will beat out rookie Zach Mettenberger for the No. 3 job.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he's "intrigued" by second-year QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the 112th overall pick of the Raiders last year, was waived in November and later signed by the Titans in December. He doesn't have a big arm or great accuracy, but Wilson has a good feel for the pocket. Wilson was a massive flop in Oakland and is a long shot to be any higher than No. 3 in Tennessee.
May 6 - 3:38 PM

Titans signed QB Tyler Wilson, formerly of the Raiders.

The Titans likely gave Wilson a two- or three-year deal and will carry him on their offseason roster. Wilson was the 112th overall pick in April's draft. He wound up getting beaten out in the preseason by UDFA Matt McGloin.

Raiders waived QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the No. 112 overall pick in April's draft, has been a colossal flop. He'll likely revert back to the practice squad once he clears waivers.

Raiders promoted QB Tyler Wilson from their practice squad.

With Terrelle Pryor (knee) sidelined, Wilson will serve as Matt McGloin's backup this week. The 112th overall pick in April's draft has spent the entire season on the Raiders practice squad.

Raiders signed QB Tyler Wilson to the practice squad.

Wilson was cut on Sunday after failing to beat out UDFA Matt McGloin for No. 3 duties behind Terrelle Pryor and Matt Flynn. The 112th overall pick in April's draft, it was somewhat surprising he cleared waivers.

Raiders waived QB Tyler Wilson.

Wilson, the 112th overall pick in April's draft, struggled with the mental side of the game in Raiders camp and fell behind undrafted free agent Matt McGloin. GM Reggie McKenzie is keeping McGloin, Matt Flynn, and Terrelle Pryor on the roster at quarterback.

Tyler Wilson hasn't gotten a single snap in either of the last two preseason games.

Wilson has fallen well behind undrafted free agent and former Penn State walk-on Matt McGloin for the No. 3 job. His big chance comes Thursday night, as he'll finally get extended preseason action. Wilson's roster spot is not secure despite his fourth-round pick status.

ESPN AFC West blogger Bill Williamson calls Raiders QB Tyler Wilson the "most disappointing rookie" in the division.

Per Williamson, it appears Wilson is "falling further behind the Raiders' quarterback pack every day." Wilson fell behind UDFA Matt McGloin earlier this month, and has struggled mightily with the mental side of the game. Wilson was 3-of-6 for 28 yards in last week's preseason opener. At least so far, the Raiders have perhaps the weakest draft class in the league. That's a major problem, as they easily have the least impressive collection of veterans.

Fourth-round QB Tyler Wilson has fallen to fourth on the Raiders' depth chart.

Wilson is behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and UDFA Matt McGloin. He's barely getting any reps at practice now. "Well, I think he's got the physical tools," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think he's behind from a mental part of the game, and that's where he's got to continue to work to improve." In terms of long-term development, Wilson still has a higher ceiling than McGloin. The game's just moving too fast for him right now.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen acknowledged Sunday rookie Tyler Wilson is losing camp reps because he's "behind from a mental standpoint."

Allen did say he believes Wilson has "all the physical tools," but he's been losing practice time to UDFA Matt McGloin. Matt Flynn is entrenched as Oakland's starter, and Terrelle Pryor has all but locked up primary backup duties. Wilson could still make a run at the No. 2 job with a strong preseason performance.

Rookie QB Tyler Wilson already "seems to be getting fewer snaps" after one week of Raiders camp.

Undrafted rookie Matt McGloin is getting more third-team action. It's not a good sign for Wilson, who had a nice spring but has lost all of his steam since camp opened. In Friday's practice, Wilson fumbled a center snap, then attempted to throw over the middle and was intercepted by RB-turned-CB Taiwan Jones.

According to the Oakland Tribune, rookie QB Tyler Wilson "has had some rough moments" early in Raiders camp, "and is getting his feet wet."

Early camp reports have Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor pulling away from Wilson atop Oakland's depth chart. Per the Tribune, Flynn is the starter "and has done nothing to lose ground." We'll keep tabs on Wilson throughout preseason.
